The historic region of Fife is rightly recognised as the beating heartbeat of the game of golf, and it provides a superb setting for a golfing tour that will never be forgotten. Walking in the footsteps of the great and good is a must for all lovers of the sport’s heritage, and you can do just that when you savour the most iconic 18 holes of golf to be found anywhere on the planet.
Here is where you’ll find the most famous track of them all, the Old Course at St Andrews. There’s so much to take in when you play here, from the sumptuous old clubhouse and the views of the sea to the deceptive large greens and the forever undulating fairways. Picture yourself and your friends posing for a photo on the instantly familiar Swilken Bridge, reflecting on the last few moments of an unforgettable round of golf, one that you’ll all talk about for years to come.
It should be borne in mind as well that St Andrews itself plays host to numerous other courses that are just waiting to be savoured. They include the Castle, the New, the Jubilee and the Eden, all of them worthy of further exploration. A short distance from here you’ll also find the Fairmont Torrance Course with its glorious views of the ocean and the excellent Lundin Golf Club, where you can sample the many delights of traditional Scottish links play.
Just a short drive from St Andrews there’s the highly rated Kingsbarns Golf Links, surely as eye-catchingly beautiful as any course in the world. A regular co-host of the annual Alfred Dunhill Links Championship, it deserves to be right at the top of your wish-list. Add in historic venues like Leven, Ladybank and Elie, and you can see why Fife is such a popular choice with the world’s golfing trippers.
And when you have a little downtime to recover, why not explore everything that the area has to offer? Fife is full of interesting places to visit, including the Scottish Fisheries Museum at Anstruther, the Crail Museum and Heritage Centre and a whole host of popular attractions in St Andrews. You’ll surely want to take in the R&A World Golf Museum, the remains of the Cathedral and the St Andrews Museum. There are several golf stores to explore, too, for those who seek a little retail therapy.
Fife has long been a top destination for golfers from all over the world, each of them eager to experience the unique atmosphere of playing golf in the game’s spiritual home. The team at Platinum Golf can help you with all aspects of your trip, including finding the best tee times at the finest courses.

Marc and I would like to thank you for the beautiful journey you prepared. Everything was well organized, timing, convenience, réservations, etc. All the people we met were so kind to us that we felt just like home. Golf in Scotland is the best place and this east coast is just gorgeous we leave the country with the ambition and hope to be back.
It was so nice to meet you and Stuart in person as well. Clearly you take great interest in your clients’ satisfaction, and it shows. As we may have mentioned, we had never been to Scotland or the UK and this trip exceeded all of our expectations. And as lovers of golf, the experience was utterly unforgettable. Thank you again for the lovely gifts you shared with us upon arrival.
We loved our trip. If we booked it again tomorrow (we wish we could!) we wouldn’t change a thing except maybe substitute a different hotel for Loch Green. Thank you for making our “bucket list” trip so special.
Thanks again for a fantastic trip !
We look forward to the next one !
We have had a great time in London too although it’s been a bit overwhelming! What a city!
Dear Lynda Yes we got the bag tags, thank you very much. And thank you for the great organisation. Everything went absolutely smoothly and even though we had a bit of an adventurous journey home with flight delays and cancellations we returned home with many great memories of a fantastic trip.
We will get in touch when we plan our return trip.
Kind regards Fiete
Thank you for this wonderful experience and for helping to make this trip a dream come true for all of us. We can’t wait to come back to Scotland!
Our heartfelt thanks to you and Stuart for the holiday of our dreams and especially for Johannes. It was beyond his expectations (and mine) and we had such a beautiful time together. The true test of Johannes’ love for Scotland was his purchase of an entire kilt outfit with all the bits and bobs, I nearly fainted –I am truly living in Outlander. I almost fell over, we expect our kilts in December or January, and photos will be sent, I promise
I cannot express enough how grateful I am to you both, every detail and every moment was fabulous! We are eating shortbread with proper marmalade and relish our memories.
Hi Lynda & Stuart,
First, back home safe & sound.
From the bottom of my heart, the two of you are absolutely amazing and delightful. But more than that, so capable. A truly glitch less nine days. So fun!
Our Scottish Golf and Whisky experience was wonderful! Thank you for putting together such a fabulous itinerary. Everything was so well thought out and perfectly timed
Basically, you put together a trip we will always remember. Thank you for everything. We would highly recommend you to our friends who are interested in a Scottish golf experience.. Also, thank you for the lovely welcome gifts and taking the time to meet us that Sunday morning at St. Andrews.
When I asked Kevin to describe the trip in one word he said “perfect”, Glynnis said “spectacular” and my word was “awesome”. Pretty simple but the words fit our pictures (almost 1,000) and our memories.
Thank you Lynda and Stewart, the trip was excellent in every way
We got the photo from Panmure and it is so good! Definitely going on my office wall!
My boys and I loved Panmure. As we have discussed before, it is exactly the kind of course and club I love to visit when here. While all the trophy courses are wonderful, they do have a bit of commercialism that I like to ignore. None of that at all at Panmure, just pure golf and pure class.
Thanks for these photos, they are great.
All my best and thanks from my entire family,
